Every year, the Connecticut Society of CPAs (CTCPA) celebrates outstanding females making their mark on the accounting profession, their companies, and their communities. Winners are members of the CTCPA currently employed in an accounting or finance role and making a difference in their companies and communities as leaders, mentors, and inspirations.
Partner Stacy Farber has been recognized as one of five women to receive the Distinguished Service award in 2023. As part of the award, she was interviewed by the CTCPA.
Q: What inspired you to pursue the CPA career path?
Farber: My mom actually suggested it. I was always really good in math, so in high school I took a bookkeeping class. I found it very easy, so I decided to give accounting a try.
Q: What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
Farber: Taking my kids to see me win a Top Women in Business Award from the Hartford Business Journal was one of my proudest moments. Becoming a CPA was the first professional accomplishment I was proud of. Over the last year, getting appointed to the Connecticut State Board of Accountancy, being promoted to partner, and receiving this award have all made me incredibly proud of the work I’m doing.
Q: What is your next major goal?
Farber: The next goal is to become the office managing partner of the UHY LLP Connecticut office.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Farber: I love to take my girls, ages 8 and 5, to the beach and watch them run around and have fun. Seeing the pure joy on their faces makes it all worth it.
